Time to add some Thai ethnicity in your itinerary. Get up early and prepare yourself for a fabulous day ahead. You'll be taking a tour of some old villages that are home to some ancient communities of Thailand. First stop in your way is after a three-and-a-half-hour ride from Chiang Mai to Thaton. You'll be reaching to Hmong hill tribe village, situated in Doi Suthep mountain that will leave you in awe with its beauty and community feeling. They are very welcoming and will make you feel comfortable. Experience their lifestyle- tiny thatched houses, vibrant clothing and jewelry, the traditional way of cooking and so much more. The village is surrounded by lush greenery and colorful flowers. You'll take an enticing Thai lunch at a local restaurant and relax for some time. From there, you'll be going for a remarkable boat trip along the Mae Kok River to Baan Mai that will bring you closer to nature and its serene beauty. Moving ahead, you would be visiting a few more ancient tribes- Akha, Palong and Long Neck Karen. People come to visit these tribes to learn about their indigenous practices, traditions, and customs. Most popular of these is Long neck Karen, a tribal village where women adhere to a particular heavy jewelry on their neck that makes it long. Uncanny but fascinating, many travelers like to take them home as souvenirs or rock it with a beautiful sundress. Heading on, you will be taken to Wat Thaton, one of the best Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai situated on a hilltop. Impressive structure from the outside, the temple has a magnificent interior. Mesmerizing artwork, multicolored statues and such a peaceful environment, you will feel blessed by this visit. At the end of the day, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
